Since I picked this rig I have been going through it to make it mine.

First update was tires and wheels.

Remove and sell Maxxis stickes and rock monster wheels.

Update to Method 301 Beadlocks and BFG KR3 40’s. I also added Apex valve stems.

I am working my way around the chassis fixing welds. I know mine are not weld porn but they are a big improvement.

I am slowly removing LineX coating. I started with the dash and fenders.

Quick trip to Lake Havasu this weekend. Now I redo the front shock mounts before Sand Hallow next month.

Added a Smittybilt awning from work. It is designed to come off easy so I don’t have to fake it on the streets.

This is a seriously cool rig. Love it. Have to admit I liked the original wheel and tire combo better, but its not my rig, so keep doing what you like!

Yea, some people did. The wheels were crazy heavy and not my style. The tires were small. They did not measure 40”. They were also a very soft compound. I didn’t need that.
